 This is the ironman / hardcore ironman Mining guide, the guide for regular players can be found here.

Mining is a skill that allows players to obtain ores and gems from rocks. With ores, a player can then either smelt bars and make equipment using the Smithing skill or sell them for profit.

Mining Store

IaH6FT3.png

To access the Mining Store, you can trade Miner Magnus in Neitiznot (North) just east past the rocks 5MyHT.jpg

He can also be found in the Donator Zone, in the room with a furnace.

Skilling Shop

The Dragon Pickaxe and Inferno Adze can be bought from the Skilling Point Store, this can be found by trading Max either at Edgville, or at the Donator Zone.

The Inferno Adze is mainly used as a hatchet. However, it can be used as a pickaxe but it is only equvalent to the rune pickaxe. This means that the Dragon Pickaxe, which only costs 500 skill points is a much better option for mining.

Chief Thief Robins Silver Stall

The Dragon Pick axe can also be stolen from Chief Thief Robins Silver Stall, which can save spending 500 Skill points. However this item is very rare.

Shooting Star

Every pickaxe, excluding the Inferno Adze, has a gilded version available. These gilded versions are exactly the same as the normal versions, just with a golden trim. To obtain these you pay with star dust, which can be obtained in the Shooting Star minigame. This could be a better alternative to buying a dragon pickaxe from the skill shop if you are saving up skill points.

Location of Rocks

Neitznot (North)

Neitznot (North) contains all the types of Rocks except for Rune. There is also a furnace/ anvil so players can train their Smithing skill at the same time.

North-East of the KBD Lair

The only area where Non-Donators can mine Rune ore is located in the Wilderness. This rock is located north-east of the King Black Dragon's Lair. If you are Mining here be careful as Player Killers may come to kill you.

Donator Zone

As the name of the place suggests, you need to be a Donator to enter this area. Just the the North of the bank, you can find one of each of these rocks: Coal, Gold, Mithril, Adamant, and most importantly Rune.
